Statements of Faith
in the beginning
♦ We believe that the Bible is truth, and God- breathed, and helpful in correcting us (2 Tim. 3:16).
♦ We believe there is one true God existing as three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Mt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14).
♦ We believe that God is our Creator and has made us in His image (Gen. 1:27).
only through jesus
♦ We believe that God sent His only Son to die on a cross for our sins so that we can be forgiven and eternally saved (Jn. 3:16).
♦ We believe that Jesus is the Son of God (1 Jn. 4:15).
♦ We believe that there is only one way to heaven, and it is through faith in Jesus Christ (Jn. 14:6).
our daily walk
♦ We believe that as a believer in Jesus Christ, we receive the Holy Spirit as a guarantee of our promised inheritance (Eph. 1:14).
♦ We believe we are called to live a distinct and holy life that honors and represents Christ. We leave the old self and its sins and earthly desires and instead constantly work towards a transformation of becoming more Christ-like (Eph. 4:20-24).
in the end
♦ We believe in Satan’s existence and force on earth as an enemy of God and believers. We believe he plays a role in the fall of humanity and our earthly brokenness. We believe He will one day be judged and overcome once and for all (Jn. 12:31, Rev. 20:10).
♦ We believe that Jesus will be back for His Church of believers (1 Thess.4:16,17).
♦ We believe we will all be judged as either followers or unbelievers of Christ (2 Cor. 5:10). Those who believe will live forever in God’s presence together in Heaven (Jn. 3:16), and those who do not will be in an eternal punishment (Rev. 20:15, Rev. 21:4-8).
